Abstract: A better understanding of the electrical properties of CuInO2, a delafossite with bipolar dopability, is approached in three respects. Structure analysis on delafossites as a whole reveals that the outermost shells with comparable energy of the monovalent cation and the oxygen anion accounts for both the structural and electrical characteristics. A correlation model is also established that may help predict new delafossites. From electronic structure and DOS calculations, the upper valence band of CuMO2 (M=Al, Ga, In) is found to be composed by a wide mixing of Cu-3d and O-2p levels, which may delocalize holes and render the p-type conductivity. As a first systematic point defect study on CuInO2, this work finds an asymmetry of p- vs. n-type intrinsic doping in terms of both defect abundances and defect levels. Stabilizing at the In position, Ca and Sn as extrinsic point defects act as an acceptor and a donor, respectively.
